Some people might think i am crazy for even considering this, or they think i was out all night with Bernie drinking “All the damn vodka”. But here are my 5 reasons as to why the old gun slinger should be calling the plays in 2014.
1. Johnny Manziel would benefit greatly!
If you sit and listen to Bernie slur and stumble over his words during the preseason and are able to make out the garble that he is talking, the man knows how to play the QB position. With a young rookie QB pegged to start his tenure in the land of the dying quarterback, Bernie would keep Manziel”s head out of the clouds and his eyes down the field in the face of a Steelers pass rush. The Browns need someone to help Johnny out when it comes to reading a defense, going through his progressions, and most of all winning!
2. Familiar with his surroundings
Since the 80’s Bernie has dealt with the wind, the snow, and the cold that blow in off the shores of Lake Erie. He knows the way an offense has to operate in Cleveland and has won, and won a lot in his years in Cleveland. The Browns for years have hired and fired this coach and that coach and haven’t so much as even opened up the back door to take a look at the tall, lanky curly haired, possibly a little intoxicated man in the back yard that goes by the name of Bernie.
3. Hungry for a winner
Bernie has been in Cleveland for years and is a true fan of the Browns. He bleeds orange and brown and just like the fans, is hungry for a winner like yesterday. He has sat back and watched the past regimes botch draft after draft, fall head over heals with a coach who doesn’t know his ass from the endzone, and the front office and owners hire the likes of Michael “By no means related to Vince” Lombardi. Bernie would not let this team quit in the 4th or hang their head when they are down by 7 with two minutes left in the 4th.
4. A great eye for talent
During the preseason he gets to watch all of these backups and nobody go out and try and impress the coaching staff playing against a bunch of other nobody’s. But to Kosar they aren’t a bunch of nobody’s they are a bunch of guys who are going out and busting their asses and showing they are somebody’s. Well unless you are the St.Louis Rams or the parents of their players. He knows a winner when he sees one and would take a little nobody guy from some hole in the wall school and push him to get every ounce of talent out of him as he could.
5. Last but not least…….The fans love Bernie!
The fans remember the days of Bernie going out and side arming passes in the face of a rush, the long bombs down the field, and all the W’s he put up for the brown and orange. No matter if he seems a little slow or maybe has a hint of vodka on his breath, the fans still know that he is the last glimmer of once knowing what winning was. They still line up to get a picture with Bernie whenever they have a chance, they still cheer him on in the city and know that he will always be a Cleveland Brown for life. Most of all he relates to the fans, he knows how much we have all been through, all the heartache, the betrayal, the lies of the team being built into a “Winner”, he knows that Cleveland wants and deserves so much better, to be relevant and a powerhouse in the league again. To play games in December and January that have meaning behind them and the sound of the crowd roaring on a frigid windy day on the shores of Lake Erie, that’s what we all want as browns fans right?
That’s my opinion as to why Bernie should be the new OC for the Cleveland Browns in 2014…..
Hey a guy can dream right?
